What’s NEW with us?
If you haven’t heard, we are moving to a bigger space on the island! This fall 2017 we are excited to announce our new address will be 222 Winner Avenue, Carolina Beach.
Toddler Twos Classes
Starting Fall 2017, we are adding a Toddler class on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9am-1pm. Ages 18 months thru 36 months.
Early Morning Care
You asked and we listened! We will be opening our doors at 7am this next school year to help parents that need to be at work early. Drop your children off and we will get them to school for you (CBES, Anderson Ele., IMCS, and KLMP).
We only have 4 spots available for our preschool for next school year. Registration is $35 and is non-refundable unless the class fills up and there is not space for your child. Registration must be paid by coming by the center or calling with a credit card. Class is limited to 10 students. Preschool is $250 a month and open for 3-5 yr olds who are potty trained. Preschool is NOT considered drop-in, so drop-in care is still available up to 4 hours daily before and/or after preschool.
This summer, Island Time is excited to implement our new youth internship program, “Island Interns”, which will offer child care education to kids ages 12 through 14. Throughout this program, we will provide hands-on child care experience, teach important leadership skills, and help your child build/expand their babysitting resume, all while having a lot of fun! School breaks are a great time for youth-aged kids to learn something new and give back to the community!
Q: What if my child is old enough for “Big Kid Camp” but I don’t feel comfortable with the big trips?
A: At Island Time we understand that all kids develop at a different pace. We will work with you and the child and will do what is safest for your child.
Q: If I have kids in both camp programs, will they be together?
A: Sometimes:) Both camp programs will start together and likely end together. They will attend some field trips together, but for the most part field trips is where they will separate.
Q: What if I need my preschooler to stay at Island Time until 5 or 6pm?
A: Drop-in is always available up to 4 hours for our regular drop-in rate before/after programs at Island Time.Have more questions? Don’t hesitate to ask.
Although we try to accommodate all families, we have reached capacity multiple times in the last 6 weeks. As summer approaches, we anticipate this trend will continue. We offer drop-in reservations at no additional charge and encourage you to use this service if you have an appointment or engagement in which we are your only child care option. You can make reservations 3 ways: 1) Email Dana or Michelle at Islandtimeplay@gmail.com, 2) Call our landline, 910-458-4386, and speak with staff to request a reservation, or 3) Text our communication line at 910-685-1884. If you haven’t made a reservation and we reach capacity, we thank you in advance for your understanding as we continue to keep children safe. Please know that space usually opens up in a few short hours.
You can stay in the “know” by following us on Facebook and via our emails after you have registered with us. We are looking forward to lots of smiling faces coming through our door and we welcome all visitors to come by and see what we are all about!
Drop in and play up to 4 hours at Island Time! Flexible care when you need it, without the financial obligation when you don’t! We are here when you need us. For children 12 months to 12 years.
At Island Time we are focused on FUN. We have a toddler area, dramatic play area with a stage, role play center, gross motor area with ride on toys, a snack/craft center, and a big kid lounge with an air hockey table, TV, games, and now an outdoor play area for a little fresh air. There is something for everyone!
As always, we are just smitten to be a part of this community. We continue to thrive because of you!
